This Pizza Sauce Recipe works out best for your Pizza Party as it is easy to make with simple and easy ingredients. Having this homemade Pizza Sauce from scratch helps you as it is made with fresh ingredients.
I always have a stock of pizza sauce at home as my kids are very fond of pizzas. Even if I am not making the pizzas from the dough, I always make Bread Pizza, Paratha Pizza, and just about anything that has all the components going into making a pizza.
Over the years, I have made different versions of Pizza sauce. I have already shared that pizzas and cakes were the dishes that got me into the kitchen when I was in my teens. We had a huge collection of newspaper cuttings with different recipes. One of the files had a huge section of homemade pizza sauces and homemade pizzas from scratch.
That was my first exposure to homemade sauces and pizzas. I have tried different versions and combinations. I have included capsicums, carrots in my pizza sauce, to make the sauce healthy and versatile. Included different herbs, both fresh and dried, sometimes with cheese, making the sauce very creamy.

Today's homemade pizza sauce recipe is yet another version that is made from scratch with fresh ingredients, though I couldn't lay my hands on fresh basil. I made this sauce during last year's lockdown period and it was different to procure. I always have the dried herbs stocked and hence used them in this sauce.
However, if you are able to get fresh basil, nothing like that!

Ingredients for making this Homemade Pizza Sauce
Tomatoes: Ripe tomatoes can be used to make this sauce fresh. We can blance and remove the skin.
Pulse to a smooth paste and then cook the puree with the spices used in the recipe.
Onions: If we want to make the sauce thick, we can add grated or minced onions. This gives body to the sauce.
Herbs: Fresh herbs are best, however, when you are not able to procure the fresh herbs, we can use the dried ones.
I have used dried herbs in this sauce.
Other ingredients: Even though I have used onions and garlic, I used the powders as well. It surely enhances the flavour.
